In This Recipe
- Remove cream cheese from fridge and let it come to room temperature. Once soft mix in lemon juice, chives, salt and pepper. Set aside
- Heat grill or grill pan. Slice zucchini into long thin ribbon, preferably using a mandolin slicer. Oil grill to prevent vegetables from sticking. Cook zucchini a few minutes per side. Add salt and pepper once off the grill.
- Once zucchini are cool enough to handle use a knife to spread a thin layer of cream cheese onto one side of the zucchini, avoiding the end that will be left exposed so the cream cheese doesn't ooze out. Roll. Use a toothpick if necessary to keep close. If not you just rest the exposed end downside on a plate. Serve warm, room temperature or cold. Feed your love!
